GoDaddy is best known for its web hosting and domain services, but their website builder is equally popular, if not more. GoDaddy brings a website builder that’s not only easy to use but packs in enough to create robust, responsive website. In this post, we take a look at GoDaddy’s option and if it can fit in the list of the best website builders.
- Firstly, GoDaddy offers about 300 amazing templates, and it is super easy to pick a theme and design the website. Yes, some website builders offer even more, but this can be considered enough.
- GoDaddy website builder is super easy to use, and the format follows the concept of ‘drag & drop’, so you can always edit and change the look of your website, before publishing. We also love how they have offered an amazing array of editing tools.
- GoDaddy is also one of the few website builders, which allow website owners to create backup of their websites. You can keep more than one copy, so in case the website needs to be changed, you can always publish the backed-up version.
- There are also enough choices for ecommerce stores with GoDaddy, and that’s something we really recommend. Not to forget, GoDaddy offers hosting and domain registration, so it is more like having a comprehensive service.
- Finally, this is one website builder that’s backed by solid support. You can be assured that GoDaddy will always help with your queries and have the best technical team at work.
Cons at a glance
Much like Wix, GoDaddy doesn’t allow you to switch between templates, which is a bummer of sorts. Although GoDaddy does have an interface for users to edit websites on the mobile and other handheld devices, we didn’t quite like the experience. There are also certain limitations when it comes to ecommerce, and we found that GoDaddy is likely to work better when it comes to developers. Their overall interface is kind of complicated, especially when compared to Weebly and Wix. If you have started with GoDaddy, you cannot switch to another website builder later, which is probably the biggest disadvantage of this option.
GoDaddy works great as long as you don’t expect a lot of things for free. Wix and Weebly are way better when it comes to usability, but with GoDaddy, you do get the option to buying domain and hosting plans.
